I'm fairly sure I need to replace the capacitors in this LCD panel from 1993, but I'm not 100% sure I'm reading them correctly.

I'm guessing that the large ones are 47uF 16V, the medium ones are 10uF 25V and those really small ones are 10uF 16V. I'm not sure what the letter and number combinations at the top are, though.

    \$\begingroup\$ Those all look fine to me. When they go bad, it is usually obvious - they either explode or leak. Yours look OK. \$\endgroup\$ – JRE May 6 '19 at 11:58

    \$\begingroup\$ What makes you think they are bad? \$\endgroup\$ – JRE May 6 '19 at 11:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ There are odd screen artifacts. Most of the time it's just horizontal discolourations extending outward from UI elements like seen here: i.imgur.com/abAjf4u.jpg In one case, though, one program has a large black area in one window and when that window is visible the black space is filled with randomly appearing and disappearing blue lines (I didn't get a picture). Old electrolytics can fail without any outward appearance. \$\endgroup\$ – StarkRG May 6 '19 at 12:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ That looks more like artifacts from a VGA connection. Is that how you have your computer hooked up to the display? If so, pull up this page, full screen the window, and run the auto-adjust function on your display: techmind.org/lcd/phasing.html \$\endgroup\$ – longneck May 6 '19 at 14:38

You read them right.

As told in the comments, they look good.

The 'F2', 'F1' and 'D4' are the lot numbers, I see something similar in ALUMINUM  ELECTROLYTIC  CAPACITORS, halfway the first page on the left.
